Default Recommend me a movie

I circle the video store looking at the older movies from the 80's-90's and seem to pick dud after dud. I like mostly dramas like cop/dectective/mafia/muder mysteries. I like other stuff too though. Anyone recommend me something good?

Colors starring Sean Penn. (Two detectives going after gangsters in East L.A. in the 80's).

New Jack City starring Wesley Snipes. (Ice-T plays a detective and goes after Drug Lord Neno Brown (Wesley Snipes).

Casino starring Robert De Niro. (Two Mobsters fight over a trophy wife and a gambling empire). One of the best movies of all time with the best actor of all time.

Since the sad movie thread reminded me of it City of God. Great movie but very disturbing.

Leon is a great one you might not have seen

If you like detective / mystery stuff, a must see is Chief Inspetor Morse. Not a movie, but a TV series.

It originally was a novel series written by Collin Dexter, and it is obligatory reading for fans of mystery.

The plots are really well written, with very good development in the mystery (who / how / why) and having deep insight in each character's human side. All combined sweetly with Morse's bitter character.

None of your business. But I can bet younger than you.

Thing is I don't discriminate old stuff / new stuff to determine if it's good or not.

Absolutely. I may be in the minority, but I liked "Casino" much more than "GoodFellas." Also, my obligatory shout out to Platoon, but if you like cop movies, "Dirty Harry" and the rest of that series isn't a bad choice.
